Henry N. Deavitt, Lawyer and Civil War Veteran, Died Sunday Night.

Winooski, Oct. 22. Henry N. Deavitt, Civil war veteran and one of the oldest members of the Chittenden county bar, died at 9:30 o'clock Sunday night at Fanny Allen hospital where he was taken two weeks ago. Mr. Deavitt was in poor health for several months and was taken to the bed about five weeks ago. The immediate cause of his death was pulmonary congestion. The funeral will be held from his late home on Wednesday morning at nine o'clock with burial in Richmond.

Mr. Deavitt was born in Bolton, March 18, 1842. He enlisted in the 1st Vermont Cavalry and was present at the battle of Cedar Creek. At the close of the war he returned to Vermont and practiced law at Richmond and Cambridge. He came to this village twenty-eight years ago, where he has since resided. At the time of his death he was moderator of the village, an office he had held for several years. He also held the offices of village clerk and town grand juror. He is survived by his widow and daughter, Beulah, and three children by a former marriage, George Deavitt of Cambridge, Mrs. George E. Allen of this place and Harry Deavitt of Utica, N.Y.
